UBF Juvenile Mentoring Program

In order for tomorrow’s youth to become leaders and not statistics, they require the support of the greater community.

With all the controversy surrounding mass incarceration of adult African American males, little, if anything, has been said about the fact that in some states as much as 77% of the youth incarcerated are African American. This, in part, is unquestionably the consequence of a lack of role models and mentorship.

We are currently accepting proposals for an unconventional approach to providing mentorship for at-risk youth. We aim to assist children to develop the skills and emotional resilence necessary to promote positive mental health; engage in constructive social behavior; and prevent violence and drug use among other challenges children face in today’s world.

None of this, of course, would be possible without the assistance of the community itself. To submit a proposal, contact us.
